“Weekend trip.”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Hotel was very good, Staff were excellent and food very good, location good.Although we did not use the entertainment it seemed to be very good, Only problem was it was rather warm during the night in the bedrooms and if the windows were open traffic noise was a bit annoying.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed O.K.

We came upon this hotel by chance, we were staying at another hotel which we were not happy with so we checked into Kylestrome hotel. We cant express what a difference, staff were very very friendly. The room was huge (room 4 facing main road, very quiet). The hotel is very modern and tastefully decorated.We had our evening meal there, my partner commented that the petite fillet steak was the best meal he had had in a long time, perfection. We will most certainly return. We done to the owners and their lovely staff. see you all soon.

Room Tip: room 4 or 5 main street but very quiet

This hotel has wonderful staff and a great chef but is let down badly by the standard of the hotel fabric and especially the heating system. The room was clean but the quality of the bed and bedding was poor. The room (9) was like a sauna, only a small desk fan to try and move the hot air around, this wasn't even summer, outside temperature around 20-22. On checking out I complained and was amazed to hear that the were fully aware of the problem but nothing had been done. A simple solution would have been a Dyson bladeless fan to cool the air rather than push the hot air around the room.

My first time at this hotel and to be honest it turned out to be a very pleasing experience, location was close to the City center with on-site parking.

Entrance was via the Bar & Grill area and first impression was a clean well decorated area, I would have no problems eating or drinking in this area.

Room was at rear of the Hotel overlooking a deck area and the rear Car Park it was comforting to know that my car was insight, King size Bed (mattress was a little firm for me) creaking floorboards (what else can you expect from a old building) Bathroom had a modern stand up shower (No Bath but this was OK with me), annoying light that was activated by motion and connected to a noisy extraction unit (just close the door and the light & extraction will soon switch off).

Bar Area was clean, modern and well stocked, prices were reasonable for a City center Hotel also equipped with a flat screen TV ..... Bar Staff were knowledgeable and talkative but not intrusive.
Menu had Lunchtime & Early evening deals, I observed several locals eating in the main dinning area (non resident) which is always a good sign ...... my choice was a Bar Meal which was (mid value food range) but very tasty (clean plate afterwards).

Breakfast was adequate cereals, yogurts & fruit juices followed by a choice from the breakfast menu ..... I selected the full Scottish usual selection similar to full English and mid sized.

My summary would be ........... well worth another visit the next time I am in Ayr,

Room Tip: My Room was rear corner, I am not sure if this room would be the best on a function night ...... one...

I cannot comment on the hotel however can on the restaurant.
We found the restaurant by browsing on Tripadvisor.
There where many restaurants to choose from however Kylestrome had a very good lunch.
You choose your main course and you get the starterts for free, if you wanted to have the dessert oit would extra 3 quid.

I had the Tempura and the missus had pate both were very tasty, especially the Pate which i sneakily stole half off!

Mains we had lasagna and partner had a braising steak, it was obvious the lasagna was homemade absolutely lovely!
The braised steak was serious quality it was basically soft as butter a knife was not need i could have used the side of my spoon!!

Dessert looked super tasty, but we felt like rather full so decided against it!

We have already decided next time we are in Ayr we will be going back!

Thanks and kind regards,

It was a very special year for my husband and I and we wanted to have dinner and stay overnight with a few friends to avoid driving home. The room was fine, clean, although bordering on getting a bit tired. Our dinner was superb, and staff excellent - I would definitely recommend for their food and service. Ayr has a lot of competition in terms of good food between all of the Costleys and Carrick Lodge which we do frequent regularly. If the continue with this quality, then the Kylestrom is well up there with them - if not better, in terms of service, as Costley service can let them down. Food was just wonderful. Thank you to Diane, KayLynne and Linda for their helpfulness.
